We'll yesterday was my appointment with Dr Kam.  He did not give me a fill which was ok with me.  My last fill a month ago was boarder line too tight.  I thought he said he gave me .2 or .3 cc but yesterday he said he put in just under .5cc.  He does that alot, talks out loud sort of too you saying one thing but in reality it's a bit different.   Anyway, he wants to see me in 3 weeks which I thought no way would I be able to schedule an appointment that soon since his office staff is always saying they can't get me in for 2-3 weeks longer than he tells me in the exam room.  He walked up front with me and told them he wanted to see me in exactly 3 weeks and sure enough just like magic they found me an opening!  Of course it was on a day that he usually does just paper work in the afternoon and catch up on stuff but hey, it works for me.   I do not feel too tight now, the tightness lasted about 2 weeks and eased off a bit.  I lost 7lbs which was good.  I am hoping to lose another 5ish before my next appointment on Aug 25 at 1pm.   I think I have a dentist appointment on the 26th which I'm going to have to cancel.  I drive about 300 miles round trip to see Dr Kam and my dentist is about 200 miles round  trip and I just don't want to make both trips back to back.  Plus we're getting new software at work and I know that training for that software falls right in that same time period. 

Yesterday I bought a Total Gym on QVC.  I've been wanting to get something like that for quite awhile now but just didn't want to spend the money.   I can't wait to get it.  It should be delivered on Aug 13th.  I am going to clean out my daughters bedroom.  There is SO MUCH stuff in there!!  I use it for extra storage space.  I have several cases of water, jumbo packages of toilet paper and paper towel ect.  If I can get that room cleaned out it will be the perfect spot for an exercise room upstairs.  So I have a project now to work on.  I get alot more done when I make it into a project. 

My dad had surgery last Monday.  He had torn his rotator cuff again!  I went down on the Tuesday before for a sort of vacation.  I had my last appointment with Dr DiNick on Wednesday.  I will miss him.  He such a great guy, but I don't need to see him again unless I decide to have more plastic surgery!  Which I would love to do but just don't have the money.  I'd love to get some minor work done on my face particuarly my eyes and over all my skin on my face but that would be 100% out of pocket and I don't want to spend that kind of money right now.  I met up with my best friend from high school who lives in Texas now.  We had dinner at my parents and talked and talked then went for a 2 hours walk/stroll thru our hometown.  Neither of us have lived there for over 30 years so it was fun to do.  I did a bit of shopping but not much.  I somehow got volunteered to paint my parents second bathroom!  I didn't really mind it but I hate the prep and clean up that comes with any painting job.  I went to see a couple of movies, Despiciable me and I can't remember the other one but both were good.  I bought 3 books all just quick reads.  I finished one and will probably start another one today.   My daughter and I went and got new cellphones.  We've been with out a contract for about a year or so.  We had Alltel then Verizon bought them out.  It's weird because with Alltel we had great reception at our house and just about everywhere we went.  But with Verizon according to them we would not have reception at our house.  Something to do with Alltel's towers.  I guess Verizon  were unable to get all of Alltel's towers?  Whatever, I had a friend come over to my house who has Verizon and sure enough she have very poor reception.  There's no way I am paying for a cellphone that I can't even use at my house.   So we went with AT&T.  I know of several people who have AT&t and they have no problems with reception and I knew from my daughter in law that we would have good reception here at our house.  Since I use my cellphone alot instead of my land line that was important to me.  So I got a cool new phone!  It's alot easier to use than my last one too.   Sunday is when I did the paint job, Monday was my Dad's surgery so that entire day was spent at the hospital.  Tuesday morning I came home.  Wednesday I worked, and Thursday was my Dr Kam appointment.  All our offices are now closed on Fridays and since no was actually going to be  working in our office I decided I'd just take it off instead of working to make up for some of the time I'd taken off. 

It's been a pretty busy summer so far.  I like busy.  I am thinking of repainting my livingroom before the fall gets here.  But I don't know, it's a pretty big room and I have some ugly wall paper border that I want to take down.  I need to think about it some more I guess.  Plus I want to change colors so I need to start thinking about what color to change too. 

I got my walk out of the way early today.  I did 12 or 13 laps (I lost track) which is about 3.5 miles.  The dog pooped out on me after 1 lap!  but I found her in her kennel when I got done so I locked the gate and left her outside.  She likes outside especially if it is windy out.  When my curtains blow in the wind it makes her very nervous.  She hate storms and I think she thinks a storm is coming or something. 

I believe that's about everything for now.  I will post again later, especially after my next appointment.
